    Love this restaurant! The art deco decor is beautiful and the grand menu was outstanding, especially with the wine pairing. Will be back.

    One of the very best meals I’ve ever eaten. Sensational modern cooking with impeccable old fashioned service. This young chef is clearly on the way up.

    The tasting menu is a dining experience. The flavors were exciting and fun. The staff were educated and capable of discussing everything being served, including some of the preparation of the ingredients. The sommelier made excellent pairings from their diverse wine list.

    We enjoyed our experience immensely. Even our little daughter loved her individually prepared dishes. Service is excellent!! Food tasted excellent and was presented superbly.

    The price fixe menu was delicious! But beware that the tasting of wine and the glass of champagne was extra. We were fine with it but you may end with a larger bill then expected. The sommelier was great and paired food and wine perfectly. They also gave us a little celebration dessert for our anniversary. Definitely would go again (but don’t do this menu if you do not have an adventurous palate). We had pigeon, sunflower ice cream, monk fish, and other tasty delights.

    I absolutely loved some of the dishes, like the muscles and swordfish, but the majority of the dishes were either standard or bad. I think the real issue is that I can’t even identify what’s off about some of the dishes other than the taste is not to my liking. Some were too strong of trying too hard to be haut cuisine or unique flavors. There are many unique flavors in the dishes but the problem is that they’re not all good flavors. I think that the chef’s palette may be accustomed to a set of flavors not favored by most other folks. It’s obvious that the chef and staff know what they’re doing - they know the mechanics and art of cooking very well. I just did not enjoy many of the flavor choices. The wine pairing was superb, the wait staff were excellent and accommodating, and the decor is phenomenal. I would be willing to come here again and give it another shot.

    Excellent fine dining. Spotless service, great food with interesting mix of flavours, superb matching wines to the dishes and best champagne so far. Truly Michelin star. Highest recommendations for gourmet dinner.
